Pune: In response to an increasing number of students from India, the La Trobe Business School (LBS) of the La Trobe University has introduced a new intake for its undergraduate business courses in November, in addition to the two semesters in February and July, to study on their Australia campus.
Head of LBS, Prof Paul Mather, along with Department of Management, Sport and Tourism Head Prof Suzzane Young and Mei-Tai (Debbie) Chu, senior lecturer at Department of Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Marketing, and Amit Malhotra, Associate Director of South Asia and Africa, were present in Pune to announce the new opportunities slated for Pune and for Indian students, on Wednesday.
A few years ago, LBS had introduced a third semester for its postgraduate courses, which has gained popularity among students in India, Sri Lanka and Nepal.
They have launched new programmes to meet the needs of the industry and the latest trends in the job market.
Mather said, “In comparison to last year, we have observed an increase of around 40 per cent students from Pune in our university. With the new undergraduate intake, new programs and scholarships will help students from India to reap significant benefits from the expertise and brand new cutting edge facilities at LBS.”
LBS has started new Master of Professional Accounting, Business Analytics, Information System Management courses etc, considering growing interest of students in finance analysis, business analysis, international and national business and many more analytical courses.
“There is a huge global shortage of analytics professionals. Therefore, in order to address the issue, we have launched courses that extensively focus on analysis. Also, students have shown a keen interest in these subjects over the years,” said Mather.
